Photo Failure

Things you should not do before your first photo session as a family of three:

  • Spontaneously go get your hair cut the day before.
  • By someone you've never used.
  • Who may or may not understand the concept of a trim.
  • Who leaves your hair layered, chopped and unrecognizable.
  • The morning of your session, spend too much time picking up the house.
  • Spend so much time feeding the baby (hungry boy!) that the photographer arrives while your hair is wet, your makeup's not on and you're shoeless. Classy.
  • Leave just ten minutes to dry your wet, choppy hair and put on some semblance of makeup.
  • Pick out six outfits for the baby but none for yourself.
  • Throw something together, then realize it's too big and looks silly.
  • Realize halfway through that your bra may or may not be hanging out of your cardigan.
  • Change immediately like a Mariah Carey-esque diva.
  • Totally forget that the session is about the baby, not you.
  • Then blog about it.
Planning ahead used to be my specialty. Now I'm so focused on feeding, clothing, cooing at and squeezing baby Mac that I can barely keep myself together. Work days have a very particular routine, but anything new throws my system into a tizzy. As evidenced by the list of issues above.

I trust the photographer implicitly and, let's be honest, I do have a super-photogenic child. But the shots with me in them? Let's hope Photoshop can work some magic! Sigh.

I'll do better next time, right?

Hope you have a happy Monday!

Oh no! Please tell me that it wasn't Natalie who messed up your hair! No matter what, I'm sure they will turn out beautifully.

I just can't help but giggle when I read this post...I bet you will be pleasantly suprised at how beautiful, collected, and calm you look in the pictures. Can't wait to see them!
